NEW VOLUNTEER ARMY
With something like 1,300,000
troops still In France and along the
Rhine, the United States is planning
to raise and send over a new army.
It may look strange, but it is the
natural thing to do and the war de
partment proposes to raise such an
army. There is also an urgent call
tor men to Join the United States
marines men who seek adventure
and want to see "what is going on
over the world.
The men now in the army nearly
all enlisted or iwere drafted for the
period of the war. Accordingly It Is
Incumbent on the war department to
muster them out iwhen the war is
over, or as soon thereafter as pos
sible. Not only have they a technical
right to return to civilian life, but
most of them are tired of the war,
and still more tired of the police duty
that follows it, and want to get back
to their families, friends and Jobs.
It is evident that American troops
are going to be needed In Europe for
months, or even years, sfter the
peace treaty is signed. There win
have to be some garrisons left in the
enemy countries to insure their com
pliance with the peace terms. It
may be necessary to police Germany
and Austria. It may be necessary
even to do some more fighting before
the big (war is really finished. So a
volunteer army Is to Ibe raised and
A call Is being issued-now for
50,000 men. It Is not expected that
there will Ibe any difficulty in get
ting that number, and as many more
as may be needed. Thousands of
young Americans will be glad of a
chance to enlist for a three-year per
iod for the sake of seeing Europe.
This Is especially true of adventur
ous lads from the training camps 'who
were demobilized Just as they were
expecting sailing orders. A good
many of the expeditionary force, too,
will doubtless feel like re-enliatlng
after they have had a short vacation
at home. Those (who have never
worn the khaki may have a hard
time getting in, iwben once the en
listment rush has started.
Senator Johnson, of California,
sees calamity ahead because of the
activities of the Japanese In Old Mex
ico; because of the bolshevikl prop
aganda being distributed in the
United States; the restless attitude
of the masses because the president
and his cabinet are hob-nobbing In
Europe, and says "there Is nobody
at home In America." The Senator
says we are under the spell of a
world hypotism, not conscious of
what Is occurring albout us, and sug
gests that we "make it respectable
to be an American again." Not a bad
